Three days after padlocking Village West Stadium and evicting the Kansas City T-Bones, the Unified Government of Wyandotte County has agreed to enter a new relationship with an organization called Max Fun Entertainment LLC, which plans to buy the team.
Commissioners voted 9-1 on Thursday night to transfer the teams ownership to Max Fun from the John Ehlert family, which owes the UG $700,000 in back rent and unpaid utility bills.
With the stadium and what were going to do with changes in staffing and marketing, we think theres a great opportunity to make this a successful and growing business, Matt Perry of Topeka, who will become the T-Bones new president and move to Kansas City, told KCUR after the meeting.
